ROBINSON -- A Trey Thompson interception return for a touchdown began a 21-point second quarter for Casey-Westfield, which was the difference in a 35-14 win against Robinson in a battle of the top teams in the Little Illini Conference.
Thompson also rushed for 99 yards and was part of a defense that held Robinson's Jason Richart to 84 yards rushing.
"Thompson had a great night on defense with a great interception return," Casey coach Jim Sullivan said. "The kids executed fairly well on defense overall."

Thompson's interception return provided the game's first points, and Casey's offense found its stride from there. Quarterback Isaac Elkins threw for 149 yards and three touchdowns -- one each to Evan Blankenship, Cory Carver and Cody Hollensbe.
"It seemed like we were just a tick off on defense," Sullivan said. "We got lucky and hit some big plays and ended up with the victory."
Casey improved to 4-0 and is tied with Lawrenceville -- its opponent next week -- at the top of the conference. Robinson fell to 3-1.
